The world consumes over 300 million tonnes of plastic each year. But when did we start using plastic? And why?

Where does all the plastic waste go?

Journey through the life cycle of plastic - how plastics are produced, the many uses of plastics throughout the last century, how our plastic use has spiralled out of control, and what we can do about it.

' R eaders are launched into a close examination of plastic - how it came to be, how it's made and used, and how it has changed the world, for better and for worse. The book objectively presents the petroleum-based substance's contributions to the field of medicine and to the accessibility of manufactured goods alongside its increasingly harsh toll on the environment ... Lee's boldly coloured digital illustrations attractively and neatly chart out complex phenomena such as microplastics consumption.' STARRED REVIEW -Publishers Weekly
